There’s nothing more relaxing than time in the great outdoors! Every Wednesday and Thursday at WinShape Camps for Girls at Mt. Berry, our girls spend a night “roughin’ it” under the stars with their camp besties.
Between worship sessions around the campfire, late night conversations by flashlight, and even roasting marshmallows to make the perfect s’more, it’s no surprise that campout is one of our favorite nitelife events at Mt. Berry!
While each camper has her favorite part of campout, there is one beloved campout tradition that each staffer and camper can agree is a campout necessity: Hobos!
In case you’ve never heard of hobos, we’re going to let you in on arguably the most delicious WinShape Camps secret…
Hobos are the traditional campout dinner for girls at Mt. Berry; filled with a variety of vegetables, meat, cheese, and sauces — oh, and pure joy of course.
The best thing about this campout-favorite is that you don’t need a campfire to make it!
All you need is a roll of tin foil, cooking spray, an oven, and ingredients of your choosing.
For the purpose of this post, we only prepared the traditional “base” of our hobos — but feel free to include your favorite meats, sauces, and cheeses to add your own personal twist!
- Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F.
- Cut foil into large squares and spray with cooking spray to prevent ingredients from sticking.
- Add your meat of choice (our WSC recipe uses ground beef)
- Add frozen vegetables of your choice (we used corn, peppers, onions, peas, carrots, and potatoes)
- Sprinkle a little bit of cheese (optional)
- Lay on the sauces (the camper-favorite is a combo of Barbecue sauce with A1 Sauce. However, word on the street is that Chick-fil-a Sauce makes for an incredible hobo)
- Wrap foil around ingredients to create a burrito-like casing.
- Cook for 40 minutes.
This recipe is sure to be a family favorite!
For the full campout experience, take your hobos to-go and enjoy them in the great outdoors!
As you take time to marvel at the beauty of the creation around you, spend some time thanking the Father for the incredible world He has created.
